War of the Homes
The War of the Homes was a conflict between the various dwarven mountain homes that currently make up The Realm of Tumunzar. As a result of the war, the old dynastic systems of government in place in the mountain homes were stripped out and replaced with a direct democracy. This was the key component of the Treaty of Heart & Stone that allowed for a universal stand-down of military forces across the region. Soon after, the practice of a rotating position of Hammer-in-Chief was instituted as a neccistity to streamline military responses to their neighbors: The Kingdom of Belothlond and The Sorcerous Kingdom of Elgas.
